Great set up day on Friday and all the creases ironed out for year 12 Philosophy and Ethics students first thing on a Monday morning! They responded brilliantly, although quietly, to the room. One of the comments in the book was words to the effect of 'praying was great, even though I'm an atheist'... hmmm...! We had a flurry of lunch-time visitors who knew me from middle schools and a number who hung out with us a lot last year.

Just a baby post to round off the week!

It's been great - and the girl who couldn't forgive on Monday, forgave on Friday. Praise God!

The forgiveness activity has been very powerful for a number of students this week - we will be working on some new prayer stations soon and I think making them similarly tactile is a good way forward as it sems to resonate really well.

Personally it has been draining and I'm glad it's now half term - but I love these weeks and can't wait for the next one!

Today we had the busiest lunch of the week – and I missed it! Great to hear of the room being well used this lunch though with 14 students coming in.

Day three and a busy morning with two classes (four Prayspace sessions) through first thing. We continue to have very quiet feedback times. After the great feedback from the class that were in Prayspace for a full 50 minutes, I think this is because of the short sessions. It seems we're catching the students at the point where, if they had another 10 minutes, they would go on and respond more deeply and reflect on a different level.

We have had three classes through again today, along with a small number of visitors at lunch and break. I think the small lunch / break visitor numbers is due to us being in a room which is accessed via a bit of an unusual route, and maybe a misconception as to who the room is for.
